PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

My name is Patsy and I am a quiet girl looking for a forever home. I like my fellow cats and I am just the sweetest kitty you’ll ever meet. I have big, gorgeous, curious eyes and a lovable personality! I would love to find my new home with lots of places to explore and a warm lap at the end of the day. Wouldn’t you like to bring me home to make your home complete?

Patsy is up to date on her shots and spayed. She has been wormed and she tested negative for feline leukemia. She is litter box trained. If you are interested in adopting Patsy, please come and meet her. You will fall in love with this cute girl!

PAWS Animal Shelter (dog)

Look at this sweet, big boy. Meet Comet. He is a new boy here at Paws Urbana.

He is fully vetted, heart worm negative, neutered and micro-chipped. He’s a 7-year-old Great Dane/Greyhound mix, who loves adults, kids, other dogs and even the kitties. He is very gentle and sweet. He loves attention and has some basic training. He enjoys walks, and, being a bit headstrong, he will need a harness.

Come out and visit this very sweet boy. He would certainly make a great family addition.

Barely Used Pets

Hi! My name is Robbie and I am a 2 year old Chihuahua boy. They say that I am the funniest little dog. I weigh about 9 lbs. And guess what…I am house trained! I’m thinking that is a very, very good thing. I walk well on a leash but I do need a harness. I have been neutered. I am OK with kids, but don’t like to be touched when I am being held by my person. I love to go for car rides and yep, I will dance for treats. They keep saying I am so much fun here at the rescue. With all of those things….house trained, harness walker and dancing for treats, how could you still be reading this? You should be racing over to Barely Used Pets to get me so I can be part of your family! Please be my forever family. I promise to be a good boy and all I want is to be loved, and maybe a little soft bed for me to curl up in. Please come and see me. I think you might be the one for me!

Champaign County Animal Welfare League

The Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) would like to introduce “Humphrey,” a spunky, 3 year old, 14 pound Chihuahua mix, who is an unclaimed stray. Humphrey loves his dog toys and freedom to run around the house. He is good with other dogs and cats but, like most little dogs, he prefers caring, older children who are more aware of a dogs’ personal space. He walks nicely on a leash and does well with house training. This little fella is looking for his forever home. Humphrey has been fully vetted which includes neutering, heartworm testing, microchipping and completely vaccinated with the DA2PPL, Rabies and the Bivalent Flu vaccine to combat the dog flu that has entered the Ohio area. Humphrey has also had his teeth cleaned and polished. All adoptions require an approved adoption application. Our adoption/donation fee is $150, cash or credit/debit card.
